Lesson Learned

Amos has been so good about not touching the presents under the tree, that we decided to let him open a small one yesterday.  The thrill of unwrapping that paper to find a set of new matchbox cars is more than his little heart could handle.  About an hour after we let him open the cars, Eric caught him red handed unwrapping presents looking for more cars.  Today, he's been calling: "cars, cars!" at the tree all day. 

We thought we were being nice by giving him a sneak preview, but I think we just made it a lot harder for him to wait to open his presents.  We demolished whatever self control he had by showing him just how great it is to open those presents.  Next year, no early opening (for kids that is).
